Emily Bennett

Intern - Central Staffs CrossFit

Growing up within the Agricultural community I have always been active, hardworking and highly motivated to succeed. From a young age I’ve always been interested in sports and fitness.

I danced at a high level performing in the European ballet by the age of 13, along with completing my exams to a Distinction level. I then moved on and found my love for Rugby and quickly moved through club, county and regional level to eventually end up within England’s High-Performance Academy.

At 18 I move to New Zealand for 12 months to take a job as Head Shepherd on a sheep and beef farm. After returning home I decided to continue my travels and then went on to travel Canada, the USA, Australia and the Cook Islands before returning to New Zealand for another 2 years.

Whilst traveling I was lucky enough to play for some incredible rugby teams, and train with some incredible people.

In December of 2018 I decided to pursue my love of health and fitness by doing my Level 2 and 3 personal training diplomas.  I joined Central Staffs CrossFit in February 2019 and immediately fell in love with the sport.

In April 2019 I took on the Internship with Central Staffs CrossFit. I’m looking forward to learning from the team and growing as a coach.
